Michigan Career and Technical Institute(MCTI) is a technical school/college located in Plainwell, Michigan that provides vocational training and certifications in several fields. It is located on 72 acres of land with 700 feet of accessible footage of Pine Lake.

A few students from poorer areas that have no disabilities are also present in the student body.

MCTI began in 1944 when the W. K. Kellogg Foundation leased the facilities for rehabilitation of returning World War II veterans and other Michigan Citizens.

In 1995, the name was changed once again to Michigan Career and Technical Institute (MCTI), what it is known as today. The Pine Lake Family Center was built in 1999 providing housing and daycare for those with families attending MCTI.
